In this paper a multi agent based e-learning framework is proposed which is able to provide a personalized experience to the learner by recommending him study material according to his requirements, goals and calibre. A fuzzy logic based recommender agent framework is used to give further suggestions to learner to increase his/her satisfaction and provide enhanced and personalized learning experience. We also used the Matlab to simulate our recommender agent.
